Hydra is affilliated with the following programs and organisations:

The Hydra coordinater FhG FIT is a member of ARTEMISIA, the association for R&D actors in the field of ARTEMIS: Advanced Research & Technology for EMbedded Intelligence and Systems.

The Hydra middleware allows developers to create inclusive applications with a high degree of accessibility for all. The Hydra project supports the Commissions campaign: eInclusion - be part of it!

The Hydra project is part of the Cluster of European projects on the Internet of Things. The Cluster aims to promote a common vision of the Internet of Things.

The Hydra project is co-funded by the European Commission within the Sixth Framework Programme in the area of Networked Embedded Systems under contract IST-2005-034891

Full Name:

Augmented Multi-party Interaction

Basic data:

Type of the project:EU IST FP6 project, Integrated Project
IST SO:Multimodal interfaces
Project Reference:506811
Launch:January 2004
Duration:48 months
Consortium:16 partners from 8 countries
Coordinator:IDIAP Research Institute, Switzerland



AMI is concerned with new multimodal technologies to support human interaction, in the context of instrumented meeting rooms and remote meeting assistants. The project aims to enhance the value of multimodal meeting recordings and to make human interaction more effective in real time. These goals are being achieved by developing new tools for computer supported cooperative work and by designing new ways to search and browse meetings as part of an integrated multimodal group communication, captured from a wide range of devices.

This Integrated Project addresses a wide range of critical multi-disciplinary activities and applications, including: multimodal input interfaces (primarily speech and visual input); integration of modalities and coordination among modalities, e.g. (asynchronous) multi-channel processing; meeting dynamics and human-human interaction modelling; content abstraction, including multimodal information indexing, summarising, and retrieval; technology transfer; and training activities, including an international exchange programme.
Relevance to HYDRA:Modelling approaches addressed by AMI project can bring the usefull knowledge for design of multimodal interfaces in HYDRA project, mainly in area of multi-chanel signal processing, multimodal information modelling, information retrieval and content abstraction.
